The opening of a world-class Sporting Clays course featuring elevated and panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and nearby snow-capped mountains was recently celebrated at the Clark County Shooting Complex. The 75-acre, 30-station sporting clays course has an unparalleled view of the Las Vegas valley. (Sporting clays are also known as "golf with guns" since most users travel between shooting stations in golf carts that have been modified with gun racks) The 270-degree view that is offered at the complex is like no other in the world, and shooting stations have been strategically placed featuring backdrops such as Mt. Charleston and the Las Vegas Strip in the immediate background, providing unequalled photo opportunities. The design by world-renowned outdoorsman and course designer Marty Fischer also involves subtle rolling hills developed around each shooting station, providing each with its own intimate environment. Unlike sporting clay stations at most other courses, this one will feature three shooting positions at each station for a total of 90. The shooting positions will also be labeled in red, white & blue indicating degrees of difficulty associated with the position. Two of the stations offer targets running on the ground, while the others simulate birds in flight. Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting that is designed to simulate the unpredictability of shooting live birds, offering numerous target flight presentations with variations in speed, distance, elevation and target size. The County's sporting clays course covers approximately 75 acres. Its designer, Fischer, of Rincon, Ga., is credited with designing more than 100 of the premier courses in the United States and is the most sought-after designer in the country. Fischer also hosts the highly acclaimed "Shotgun Journal" on The Outdoor Channel. The sporting clays course will round out a wonderful assortment of amenities already available at the 2,900-acre complex, located at 11357 N. Decatur Blvd., about five miles north of the 215 Beltway, including an archery center, shotgun center, rifle-pistol center, education center, 100-meter and 50-yard archery ranges and a host site. The Clark County Shooting Complex is open for public shooting. The hours of operation at all centers is 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Special events may be scheduled for any day. Equipment rental, ammunition and eye and ear protection are available onsite. Sporting Clays targets are $32 per 100. A gasoline powered Clays Cart (seats 4) can be rented for a 3-hour period for $25, or all day for $50. Gun rental is available at $20 per day. Ammunition is available at varying prices due to brand, or customers are welcome to bring their own as long as it conforms with our standards (i.e., no shot pellet size larger than 7.5 (lead) or 7 (steel) and shell length cannot exceed 2 3/4". More information about the complex is available at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/shootingcomplex or call the shooting complex at (702) 455-2000. And be sure to follow the complex on Facebook and Twitter! The Clark County Shooting Complex opened its first phase in December 2009 on 178 acres, paid for by money made available through the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act. The site is located on 2,900 acres, including a buffer, on land transferred to the County from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
